Todd Drashner was born and raised in the semi-wilds of Alaska, first got into science fiction at age 9 when he picked up a copy of Clarke’s Childhood’s End in a bored moment. Has been hooked on SF ever since. Generally prefers ‘hard’ science fiction that is still not afraid to think big. Went to college at University of Arizona, Tucson intending to become engineer and discovered that higher mathematics just doesn’t compute for him. Switched to English and graduated in 1993, but always remained avid science and science fiction fan. Encountered Drexler’s Engines of Creation in college along with trans and post-humanism and Vinge’s Singularity concept. When he grows up he wants to be a Power. Current interests include reading, working out, music (hard rock to classical, no rap please), and thinking about the future. Discovering Orion’s Arm was one of happier moments in 32 years of life to date. Currently lives in the Tidewater Region of Virginia and works as the Training and Quality Manager for a call center.
